I would definitely recommend Universal Accounting to anyone wanting to start his or her own bookkeeping business. The classes are intense and informative. You really learn the necessities of bookkeeping. With the knowledge you gain from the classes you are prepared to start your own business. I had my first client on the first day of class. Before I was done with the four week course I have four clients. Just have the guts to follow the advice that Universal Accounting gives on marketing and you too will be able to build your own bookkeeping service.
